What William S. Burroughs’ Junky was to heroin addiction, All or Nothing is to gambling, only more prophetic.
Preston L. Allen
PRESTON L. ALLEN, a recipient of a State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, is the author of Jesus Boy, the critically-acclaimed novel All or Nothing (Akashic), and the award-winning collection Churchboys and Other Sinners (Carolina Wren Press). His stories have appeared in numerous magazines and journals and have been anthologized in Brown Sugar (Penguin), Miami Noir (Akashic), and Las Vegas Noir (Akashic). He lives in South Florida. Every Boy Should Have a Man is his latest novel.
A majestic novel that will launch Allen into the ranks of Junot Díaz and Toni Morrison.
In this chilling portrait of America’s Sin City, lady luck is just as likely to dispense cold hard cash as a cold-hearted killing.
